Texas knocks out Sabathia in 10-run 3rd inning

NEW YORK (AP) The Texas Rangers have scored 10 runs in the third inning against the New York Yankees, a night after a seven-run third en route to a 10-9 win.

Shin-Soo Choo and Prince Fielder each had two hits in the inning Saturday. According to STATS, it's the highest-scoring inning for Texas since an 11-run third against Houston in a 16-5 win over Aug. 29, 2013. After Texas chased Yankees starter CC Sabathia, Choo capped the burst with a three-run, opposite-field homer to left. This was Sabathia's shortest outing in six years.

New York began the day with four consecutive losses and eight in nine games. It was the most runs allowed by the Yankees in an inning since a 14-run second in a 22-4 loss to Cleveland on April 18, 2009.
